Ethernet, the protocol that is ubiquitous in enterprise local area networks, is now being offered by service providers as a metro or wide area service. These publicly available Ethernet services have been among the communications market’s fastest growing
segments, with carriers enjoying revenue growth in the range of 25 percent annually as enterprises large and small opt for these new services offered in an array of speeds and reach.

Carrier Ethernet services, which was a $2.4 billion market in 2009, offers the enterprise customer the chance to tie locations together in what appear to be virtual LANs that can stretch across a metropolitan area, a region, a nation, or the world. These widely available Ethernet services offer significant advantages in cost and simplicity and in facilitating convergence—and are often touted as a replacement for legacy data solutions like private line and frame relay.

This Insight study projects market size, growth, and revenue, including segmented breakdowns of point-to-point and any-to-any services as well as by interface levels ranging from 10 Mbit/s to the emerging 10 Gbit/s standard. This report provides insight into this emerging arena that will fundamentally shape the communications market of the future.

    Report Excerpt

    1.1      Carriers and Public Ethernet Services

    Ethernet is the world’s primary computer-to-computer protocol, with interfaces on well over a billion computers worldwide—and it is becoming an increasingly important force in metropolitan and wide-area communications as well. 

    Public Ethernet is in a rapid growth stage.  Its multifaceted appeal in relation to other data services has meant that even the global economic slowdown has only had a modest effect in slowing its seeming inexorable rise.  Ethernet has become an increasingly prominent feature of the national data networking landscape in the US— and it remains even better established in parts of Europe and East Asia.  Ethernet services are available from virtually all major US data service providers including incumbents, second-tier carriers, and smaller specialized players who tend to differentiate themselves by price, technology, and flexibility.

    Insight’s use of the term “public Ethernet” refers to any Layer 2 public network carrier service that extends Ethernet beyond the local area network (LAN) and connects to customers across Ethernet interfaces.  Public Ethernet may be marketed as transparent or native LAN, Ethernet, gigabit Ethernet, GigE, metro Ethernet, Ethernet private line (EPL), Ethernet virtual private line (EVPL), Layer 2 virtual private network (VPN), Ethernet access, VPLS, or a variety of other names.  Insight’s definition does not, however, include routed Layer 3 IP-VPN services, which also can be described as carrying IP (Internet protocol) over Ethernet.  Our use of the phrase “public Ethernet services” includes relatively longstanding though upgraded legacy transparent or native LAN services, whether asynchronous transfer mode (ATM)-based within the network core or using an Ethernet over fiber (or SONET) architecture.  Our definition also includes newer services from small and
    large carriers ................
